Doesn't get much better than that...

Welcome to the Southeast. Bitter cold one day, sun and unusual warmth the next. We've seen it all this winter. Snow, ice, rain, single digit temps (negatives in the mountains), and now temperatures in the mid to upper 60s. We're sitting at 70 here in Kannapolis. I, along with many others, don't know how to react to this brief, but very much welcomed warm spell. This winter is going down in the books as the coldest winter Charlotte has experienced in 69 years. Temps in the 60s is a welcome sight. Especially this year. Now, because it's short lived, you won't see Quill Gordons and Blue Quills hatching. In past years a warm second half of February triggered premature spring hatches. Hopefully that won't happen this year. It very well could though. Meteorologists are now advertising the idea of a warm (or not as cold) February here in the Southeast. We'll see what happens. Still, it takes a serious warm spell to warm the water enough for the first major hatches of the year to occur. Usually a water temperature of about 50 degrees is the magical number. Time will tell...

Despite the warm weather, snow and ice can still be found in the higher elevations. It has become compacted from all of the past snow and ice and will take a while to melt. Regardless, the warm weather this weekend has produced some of the best fishing we've seen in a long time. If you managed to get out this weekend, tell us how you did in the comment section below or over on the forum!

Enjoy the remainder of this heat wave! We'll be back down to normal tomorrow.
